On 31 May 2017, Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TA CR) organized a seminar on innovation partnerships and the first preliminary market consultation for a project to be implemented with this new type of procedure - innovation partnership. The innovation partnership is a new type of public procurement for contracting authorities within the European Union, regulated by the Directive 2014/24 / EU of 26 February 2014 on Public Procurement, and in the Czech Republic implemented by the Act no. 134/2016 Coll., On Public Procurement. TA CR will apply the innovation partnership procedure under the BETA2 program, which is focused on public services contracts in the field of applied research and innovation for the needs of the government authorities.
The first selected project is a joint project of the Ministry of the Interior and the State Administration of Land Surveying and Cadastre with no. TITXMV702 named "Methodology and Technology for Creating Professional Thesaurus and Dictionaries for the Development of National Infrastructure for Spatial Information". The main objective of the project will be a creation of software and certified methodology for the creation, management and use of interconnected specialized thesaurus and dictionaries in the sphere of development of national infrastructure for spatial information related to existing transnational thematic thesauri, with possibility of utilization in other areas of public administration activities.
The event was attended by 33 representatives of suppliers, government authorities and a professional public. During the TITXMV702 preliminary market consultation, the feasibility of this project and understanding of the objectives were confirmed. Concurrently the definition of criteria for qualitative selection was adjusted to allow wider range of suppliers to participate.
